I felt well enough to go back to the gym with my friend Eloise. Today was our last visit with our "personal trainer", a darling young man named Robby. He has been so good about getting us revved up and going, but then we found out that it would cost us an extra $140/month to continue to have him continuing to rev us up once a week, so now we are on our own. He did give us a pretty good idea on what equipment we needed to work on, so that was helpful. They're showing "The Hunger Games" in the treadmill movie theatre, so I think I'm going to have to go for the next three days to be able to see the whole movie. Actually, my husband and I watched it the day after it came out on DVD, and, I must say, it kind of creeped me out to see kids killing kids. It was an exciting movie, but the subject matter was GROSS! I hope my grandson doesn't go see it. He's only 14, and I think he's too young for such gruesomeness. I know many people disagree with me, but it's one thing to read a book about the subject, and quite another to see the violence in vivid color right in front of you. That being said, I do intend to read the books - strange huh??
